Conditions with symptom: 'confidence issues'
Does anyone know around how much this surgey would cost? I Am very interested in this as my labia give me much discomfort and confidence issues thanks , Rach x
Mine cost me £2,500, i was not put asleep though so it would cost more if you wish to. This is with Bupa.
my vagina is bigger than the ones shown, i am 16 just about to turn 17 and have had no sexual experiences. its so bad i cannot wear tight clothes as there is a 'bulge', i have severe confidence issues because of it. is this normal?
I am 16 going on 17 too. I have this exact problem and although I lack confidence because of it, I know that everyone varies it's just a matter of accepting who you are. :)
i have psoriasis and have done for the past 11 years. I have tried all light therapies, puva, uvb etc topical therapies exorex, dovenex, dovabet, tar ones, and tablets all range of tablets. the only option is the biologics however the hospital say there is no funding and are just letting me sit and wait with no other treatments and meanwhile the condition gets worse, i have it now on EVERY part of my body except thankfully my face, which they now say my assessment score doesnt put me high up the chain enough. ( they dont understand the effects this has, self esteem, sleeping issues, confidence issues etc). What other treatments can i do in the meantime to try and 1: keep it at bay, b: reduce the itchiness as alergy tablets dont work, c: potentially reduct it ? willing to try anything. thanks
I have asymmetrical breasts and they're really affecting my self confidence, I'm 16 and one of my breasts is an A then other being a DD, most of the other issues have been only one cup size difference, but mine is 4... has anyone experienced something? what did you do? and what are the costs for surgery if I were able to do that?
Mine is exactly the same! Im a DD-E on the left and an A on the other! its such a pain! I went to my local GP at the age of 14, and they refered me to my local breat clinic at my hospital, who refered me back for when i was 16. i recently went back to the GP and had the same procedure. I was meant to get implants on both a few weeks aog but the PTC declined my case. So we are having to push it even harder. Otherwise for the surgery im meant to be having is £3000. Its such a relief to find someone the same as me!
That's exactly the same with me! DD and an A breast. The DD breast hangs much lower and my A breast (my left breast) is practically 'pointing' to the left. It looks horrible...
Why can't I get better mental health issues and find it hard to talk face-to-face to people panic attacks of dentists, anxiety, low confidence low self esteem , etc any advice ?
When I was pregnant my breast size shot up from a c-g then breast fed since then my breasts have completely sagged and have a lot of extra skin. Have major confidence issues can't even undress infront of my boyfriend.
I'm 18 my breasts are a size 34a they haven't grown or changed since about the age of 14-15. They are triangular shaped and my nipples don't stick out only when I'm cold. I feel they are under developed and its causing major issues in my life, my sex life etc i have 0 confidence because of it and I would just like your advice on what I should do.

My son is 14 years old and has the opposite problem, he has pectus carinatum (pigeon chest) he is really paranoid about it. When we went to see the dr about it and he looked at it and said thaat he would send a referral to the hospital, this was about 5 months ago now and we still have not heard anything regarding an appointment. My son has confidence issues and this is really not making it easy as his chest sticks out and its quite noticeable. Can anybody give me some advice or help please. I dont know what to do now. Thanks. Stacey Simmons.
I have a large compound nevus birthmark on my arm which has cause severe confidence issues for many years now. I am now 20 years of age and feel I am old enough to do something about it. I've looked into laser treatment but all of these treatments are costly. I've heard that people have had their birthmarks tattooed over. I want to know if this is possible for my type of birthmark, besides not being able to see the birthmark are their any physical dangers to tattooing over the birthmark? Thanks.
